The Common University Entrance Test will be a common entrance test for admissions into 54 central universities and 88 universities in total in India, which will be conducted by the National Testing Agency.
In order to unify this process, the Education Ministry has introduced CUET which will be conducted by NTA as a common exam for admissions into all the central and many other universities of India.
However, due to the immense weightage of the 12th marks, not each student had an equal opportunity in approaching their dream university. The 12th cut-off-based exams gave all the importance to the marks scored in the 12th standard.
It shows subjective bias. But with the introduction of the CUET, a student can give an exam based on their domain subject which reduces the weightage of the other subjects of 12th standard. A student can now pursue their field of interest with a fair opportunity.
The very popular system of cut-off of some universities will come to an end. No doubt, CUET will probably create its own dimensions of a rush but the chaos of cut-off will be over. It's time students’ aspirations are put to priority and ensure a fair mechanism is given to them for college admissions.
One of the most striking answers to "Why CUET is important?" is the equality served to all the central universities. So far, each university has its own set of UG admission processes which may or may not be fair to the reputation of each college.
